Harley-Davidson has announced a new special limited edition Street Glide Special slathered in a striking blue and white paint scheme that may shoo some cagers out of your way on the freeway.

The MoCo has teamed with long-time custom paint work artisans Gunslinger Custom Paint in Golden, Colorado, to craft the latest Special, which is not officially part of the CVO family but does include a very long list of features including LED Daymaker lighting, Boom Box GTS stereo, Prodigy custom wheels and a full-color touchscreen that includes GPS. Riders looking for a bit more touring capability can add a paint-matched rear tour pack for $1,700. The Special is packing a 114-cubic inch Milwaukie-Eight V-Twin for power.

According to a press release, the color scheme is called “Arctic Blast Limited Edition” and features “metallic deep blue with bright blue strokes over a pearlescent white base.” It appears to have a generous helping of metal flake as well.

“The Arctic Blast paint is executed in strokes of high-contrast color intended to communicate the appearance of motion,” Brad Richards, Harley-Davidson Vice President of Styling and Design said in the press release. “The design looks bold from a distance but offers interesting details that can only be seen up close, including a blue pearl effect over the white base, and a ghosted hexagon pattern on the fairing.”

It’s a good looking bagger to be sure, but it also looks like a paint scheme reminiscent of a law enforcement motorcycle. I owned a motorcycle with a similar paint job and it had an almost magical ability to convince drivers to get out of the fast lane when I came up behind them. While motorcycle riders may be able to quickly spot the difference between a Harley and a Kawasaki or BMW coming up behind then, it was clear that drivers with no clue opted to be on their best behavior. It was the safest motorcycle I ever owned.

Only 500 Arctic Blast Limited Edition Street Glide Special units with production numbers showing on the gas tank will be made available at a base price of $38,899, a $6,895 premium over a comparably equipped Street Glide Special. The bike was just revealed at the Sturgis motorcycle rally.
